Intel has CLEARLY engaged in anticompetitive behavior for YEARS. This is no different than M$ "owning" the OEM OS market. Everyone here will agree that M$ is anticompetitive, and has tried to squash every other OS manufacturer, and we all rejoice when they are slapped on the hand. This is the exact same situation. AMD is an amazing company, that slapped intel in the face a few years back, bringing a superior product and a lower cost. If Intel would not have choked AMD out of the OEM market, we would probably see better products from both companies today. (Intel because they were threatened, AMD because more market share = more cash for R&D). My 2 cents.

I think Intel is an awesome company. I also think AMD is amazing. There is enough in the OEM PC market to support both, so I wish they all could play nice. I teach my 4 year old to share for the good of the group, but I guess the corporate world never learned that.

FREE MARKET IS WHAT MAKES INNOVATION POSSIBLE!!!

Nice comment. One thing AMD has forced intel to do, since they were late to offer anything new in the athlon/phenom line up, is make them sell the cpus at a lower price. Not much of a leg to stand on. I hope Intel realizes they couldn't do what they wanted. Nothing said can make what they did seem positive or good.

amd calls intel thieves

AMD CALLS INTEL THIEVES.



''AMD's Pat Moorhead, though, believes that Intel is now permanently marked. Like an ex-convict, it now has to check in with EU authorities periodically to have its behavior monitored. And that stain may extend to its business deals in the US and elsewhere, he said: "If someone steals from his neighbor, it still makes that person a thief, even though he didn't steal from your house."

If AMD wants a competitive market, they should really work on actually making competitive products. I know they can, I've seen them do it...
You do realise that AMD's recent heartache is directly caused by Intel's deprivation of their market share?... With less market share = less R&D funds = stuff like TLB bug.

Though, they've really picked themselves up in the past few months. Wouldn't mind a phenom or two for a mid ranged system-Intels overpriced.

so i work at bestbuy and if you look at machines that come into GS to be fixed (poor people) intel to amd is 10:1 there are so many P4 530 and P4 640 etc that come in an a64 is rare so rare in an OEM PC
2 reasons:
1. may be a64 based pcs never got sold so they didn't come in for repairs
2. Intel inside Idiots outside rule (AMD inside smarties outside so they fix it by themselves:laugh:).

Hope this ruling gives some fresh breath into AMD and they can crawl back up.

Intel has dominated the market since 1991 and this fine wont change Intel's position as a market leader.

AMD hasnt produced a good product since the bought out ATI. from their on the relase sockets AM2, AM2+, AM3, made poor Phenom cpus, also they didnt keep their promises like the one how AM2+ cpus will work on all previous AM2 mobos. AMD has FAILED and i dont think they can produce poor Cpus and stay in the market forever. Fanboys wont help much.

HAHAHAHA, truer words were never spoken.

While I do not deny that Intel were in the wrong, and that the disgraceful NetBurst architecture should have been taken out and shot far earlier (and probably would have been, if AMD had sold more chips), the fact of the matter is that funding is not AMD's biggest problem; producing mediocre CPUs is.

You may argue that's a result of decreased funding caused by Intel's dominance in the market, but throwing money at a problem rarely solves it (look at the recent bailout loans for automakers). AMD scored a home run with K8 which they were never able to capitalise on; to suggest their woes are purely the result of money, as opposed to management, problems is naive at best.

actually most boards will run a phenom even if the BIOS support is not there. thats how well designed the sockets are.

they have not failed, failed companies file bankruptcy. ATI has been flourishing pushing out NEW cards constantly pushing nvidia to drop prices and bin the hell out of that damn G92 die :laugh:

the CPU's are performing just fine for joe mainstream how many cores do you need to run powerpoint and internet exploder? most people who buy computers today would be impressed with a phenom X3. price for performance intel does not really have a competitor to those chips. the new athlon II X2 and phenom II X2 chips will fill the gap that the athlon 64's have left and there will not be a competitive Core 2 based cpu that does not have a lower priced amd chip right next to it. this is starting to spread in the US to manufacturers they aren't stupid people buy numbers for the same price of a dual core they can shove an extra core and better video into the same price point. as of right now you can walk into bestbuy and find ~20 AMD based desktops and ~35 intel based ones 10 of those intel's are apples so i wouldn't count them myself. that leaves AMD 20 to intel 25 that sounds like a close market share in desktops. bad market share my ass, inferior product my ass for the money AMD still holds to be a better buy for mainstream.

here only a few ppl own Phenom based systems. 75% LGA775 C2D/C2Q, i7 10%, AM2+ Athlon 64X2 10%, Phenom II 5%. that would be the market currently in Slovenia.

I dont know anyone with a Phenom/Phenom II system.

after this sanction intel cannot bribe or threat manufacturers in Europe, this is a tremendous blow against intel because intel doesn't know how to compete in a market without using extortion and threat, so is going to be interesting to see what happens with a handcuffed mobster.

Too bad AMD owns the rights to x64 chips which they license the rights to Intel. With out AMD's technology Intel would be hurting hardcore. Most to all new pc's ship with 64 bit OS's so if Intel wants to start a real fight AMD could ruin them. Also AMD's are true monolith procs which makes a giant difference in real time audio and video production.

i7 is a true monolith as well. But Phenom I didn't beat Intel's quads at the time, despite Intel's quads being 2 dice on one package.

Good for Intel only a few chips late on the monolith design, now the price just needs to come down enough to make them worth it. Intels Quads lag out in audio production causing random spikes and pops in audio levels screwing stuff up. Also since AMD's were monolith when rendering objects it took alot less time.

Use that program to see your systems latency and you will be able to see the difference.

Woud'nt that just be a regular buffer instead of the CPU?

Both make wonderfull CPU's. Even tho AMD is more innovativer then Intel is with their 2-cores-on-a-die-sticked-together, this fine does not hurt Intel at all. It's like 30% fine of what they made in total back then when this was going on.
Id'like to see AMD coming back with their chip with a much better price/performance schedule then Intel is right now. Something competetive with Icore 7. AMD Can do it.

I would say AMD has always had the upper hand is price to performance ratio. People just buy Intel cause its a larger name. Its kinda like Microsoft vs Linux. Don't get me wrong Intel offers and has offered alot of higher performance chips but sometimes I just can't see the justification of paying more for that little gain.

Never had a single latency issue while recording or mixing for albums on an Intel quad core. No pops, no anomalies whatsoever. I'd look at supporting hardware before looking at the cpu.

I'd also like to see where AMD renders faster than Intel. Not saying it isn't true, but I haven't seen it.

nor have i and i have an AMD in fact intel's old netburst architecture rendered better than K8 did so it would make me believe it continues to render better...

the problem is that you don't understand the old architecture you are using, core 2 uses front bus, which has always being a botleneck thats why when the system is heavily taxed your sistem is not as responsive as an amd system with hypertrasport.
an amd system is smoother because is more advanced. and that's why intel copied the amd architecture.

I bet thats a fairly accurate description of TPU users. Probably 80% 775, 10% i7, 9% PII, 1%939/478. Gross estimates



I'm laughing at AMD's response that Intel's permanently labeled as thieves. Everyone know's M$ is the biggest snake and money sucker and 99% of the people here love the latest offering Windows 7(all beit it is a free beta, and not $120 retail). I compare it to the I'm a Mac, I'm a bloated Hog(PC) argument from Apple, Lame.

Except that my system completely outperforms Phenom I in everything. Design doesn't matter, only the end results matter, and the end results were that Intel was faster.

AMD only caught up to Kentsfield/Yorkfield with the release of Phenom II, but that isn't because it's a single die. If single die mattered, Phenom I would've been faster, but it isn't.

is not a problem because you know nothing about cpu architecture, thats why you only judge by looking at benchmaks , but the whole experience is much better in a computer that is snappy and responsive and doesnt have bottlenecks.
ignorance is a blessing sometimes but most of the time is a curse.

is not a problem because you know nothing about cpu architecture, thats why you only judge by looking at benchmaks , but the whole experience is much better in a computer that is snappy and responsive and doesnt have bottlenecks.
ignorance is a blessing sometimes but most of the time is a curse.
I've tried both Phenom I and my Intel setup, and my system is faster, PERIOD. Even in day to day use, like surfing the web, doing some light photo editing, maybe watching a few movies or listening to music. The Phenom I was slower at everything, and was not "smoother" at all. It had absolutely zero benefits over my Intel. A single die did absolutely NOTHING to help it. It was slow at everything in comparison.

Haven't tried Phenom II yet to comment.

you could have a chimpanzee riding a bike insted of a cpu and you would not notice the difference , is like a car with a fine and advanced engine versus a souped up up old engine. there is a difference in the experience of driving both even though you deny it.
